“Be warned!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

This restaurant offers a buffet at 7€ with a drink, which is great value, but this is a trap. If you order another drink you are charged a further 7€, doubling your bill and if you order a third drink you are charged a full 7€. Yes you treble your bill, which is easy to do if you are with kids as I was. Do not be caught out with this. Alternatively seek another restaurant as the owner gets stroppy when you question the policy and deserves to be stopped from conning tourists.

“Average Self-Service Food With Very Friendly Staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

This is a self-service restaurant right in the heart of Florence. The food was average, but good. I had chicken milanese, french fries, and spinach. It was over all pretty fresh and tasted good. The decor was retro-50s inside, very cute. There is also an outside seating area. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Like all self-service places, the prices aren't as cheap as you would think, but this was an average cost for the city.

Just a couple of blocks from the Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio, Hot Pot has good food at reasonable prices. The salads are especially wonderful

“Friendly, good location but poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

We were drawn in by their flamboyant barker. He was a joy to watch as he ogled the beautiful women strolling by. We had no so great pizza, beer & good coffee. Neat location across from Orsan Michele with its lovely outdoor statuary in wall niches.
